The Friends have initiated and will finance a specially commissioned treehouse to be built in the Australian National Botanic Gardens. Sitting among a stand of paperbark trees, ‘the treehouse and surrounding landscaping will create a wonderful nature play area for children and their families’, said Lesley Jackman, President of the Friends.

The design, by Sydney-based architecture and design company Cave Urban, is the winning entry in a national design competition conducted by the Friends and the Gardens. It uses recycled timber, some of which will be salvaged from the Gardens.

Construction starts in July with completion in October this year.

More details are in this media release.
